Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas is on the verge of completing a transfer to Italian Serie A champions AC Milan if reports coming out of Italy are anything to go by.
The Chelsea player has been on the fringes of the Blues team and that has fuelled reports of a transfer away from Stamford Bridge when the January transfer market reopens in a few weeks’ time.
Fabregas has just six months on his current Chelsea deal with the Blues reluctant to hand the 30-year-old fresh contract terms.
Italian media reports claim that seven-time European champions AC Milan have offered the Spanish international player a two-and-a-half year contract that will take him until the end of the 2019/20 season.
AC Milan are in need of midfield additions due to the long-term injuries suffered by two Rossoneri midfielders.
Argentine international star Lucas Biglia and Italian midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura are facing respective long spells on the sidelines due to long-term injuries.
Former Arsenal skipper Fabregas is seen by AC Milan as a quality addition to a lean midfield and the club is ready to make a cut-price move for the 31-year-old in January rather than wait until his contract runs out at the end of this season.
